I felt so gloomy and Eeyore-ish an hour ago I decided to go search for something pretty and inspiring. I found this excellent painting on Poppytalk. It’s from Anthology Magazine, but I don’t know who the painter or photographer is (if you know, please share so I can properly credit them).

What a painting! I want make a study of it. Or have one of my kids create a series based on it.

What have you seen lately that’s beautiful and inspiring? How do you get yourself out of a gloomy hour?

UPDATE: Thanks for tracking down the sources. You guys are the best. The artist is Meredith Pardue. The photographer is Jen Siska. The stylist is AB Chao. Such talented people!
